London train ticketing query

Jump to last reply

I plan to fly to Gatwick tomorrow (Saturday) early morning, buy an off peak return to Chatham Kent. I can go via Victoria or St. Pancras. I also plan to buy a London travelcard zones 1& 2. At Victoria or St Pancras I then plan to meet friends and do some travelling around London, then in the evening get a train to Chatham. My question is, as I will probably spend some time in New Cross area in the evening, do I then have to tube or bus back to Victoria or St Pancras to continue my mainline journey to Chatham, (this will be on the same day as my starting at Gatwick) or can I get tube to Lewisham or somewhere nearby & get on mainline train there?

A related question is: in the morning, do I have to get out at Victoria or St. Pancras, or can I get out at, say, Blackfriars or city Thameslink or Farringdon, (all or most FCC trains stop at these) and keep hold of my onward ticket to Chatham for later on?

Thank you to all you UK train enthusiasts who know these details. Even if the answer comes too late for this trip, I'd love to know for future reference.
